Mouse Tricks you must know

Do you know there are certain tricks to work with a mouse?

This post includes all the mouse tricks you are not aware of.

The very first fact I would like to tell is that even the most basic mouse has a total of three buttons. The scroll button is the most unused button ever. By scroll button, I mean that when you press the scroll button there's a click sound. That clicking sound is functional and can be put to great use.

Trick 1

You can directly close a tab in your browser by clicking on the tab using "Scroll Button". The keyboard shortcut is "Ctrl+w"


Trick 2

Annoyed by opening a link in a new tab by right-clicking and then hitting "Open in new tab", well if you click a link using the scroll button it'll directly open in a new tab. A link can be opened in a new tab by simply clicking on the link while holding "Ctrl" on your PC.


Trick 3

Now this trick ain't scroll button-related but can be very helpful. If you want to select a text, conventionally you drag the text while right-clicking. But here's an easy way to select a text, move your cursor to the beginning of the text now hold "Shift" and left-click till where you want the selection. This might sound a little difficult but this helps a lot.
